POLICE OFFICE.-TUESDAY. Before the Police Magistrate. THE CASE OF CHILD STEALING.-Patrick Moran appeared this morning in discharge of his bail. He produced the boy Henry Farrell, whom he was charged with kidnapping. The little fellow was   placed in the witness box, and interrogated by the Magistrate but nothing could be elicited from him beyond a statement that he had gone with the man willingly. Moran was consequently dis-   charged, the magistrate cautioning him to be more careful in future. Strange to say, the mother of the lad did not make her appearance, and the Court instructed a constable to see that the child was safely delivered at her residence.

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 26 March 1851

CALIFORNIA. A Lecture was delivered last night, at the School of Arts, Pitt-street, on the subject of California and gold mining, by Mr. E. W. Rudder, who has lately re- turned from San Francisco, after nine months residence in tho country, four of which were spent in, active operations at the mines. The lecturer divided his discourse into four heads-viz., 1st. The nature of the   country, and its general features ; 2nd. The gold formation ; 3rd. The nature of mining operations, and 4th. The expense and general results of mining speculations. The lecturer gave a very eloquent de- scription of the physical peculiarities of California, and dwelt at some length on the variable nature of the climate, which he asserted was conducive to disease in the great majority of cases. After glancing at the imperfect regulations for sanitary purposes, he stated that of the immigrants arrived in California during three years, at least one-third had perished from dis- ease, despair, and ...
